Hot Courts  

Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested
Organizers :   Hans Boerner and Kenny Goodman
 
 
 
 
Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).
 
Join us!         
 
                                        




 

MEN’S DOUBLES UNLADDER TOURNAMENT                                   

                                                                  
Date:            Sunday March 22nd
Time:           12:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Location:      Mills College, Oakland
Cost:            $10 Members only
Organizers :   Marty Gutherz 
Register:        Mens Doubles Sign Up


Due to serious mental health concerns about some of the participants in the Men's Doubles Ladder activities who reported being extremely stressed out about the prospect of being dislodged from a highly coveted rung on the ladder by upstart challengers, the MTA board members, exercising their humane and wise judgment, unanimously voted to relegate the ladder to the scrap heap of history. 

So, in lieu of a ladder tournament, we're doing a regular men's doubles tournament for 2015
ad infinitum. So, if you and your partner are victorious in this event, you will be ceremoniously coroneted as the 2015 Men's Doubles Kings and will, thereby, be relieved of the lingering anxiety that some hotshot duo will attempt to steal your crowns.

This event has invariably been one that involves fast and furious but friendly play. The skill level of you and your partner to compete in this event is 3.0 and higher (hopefully, no 7.0 level players will sign up). Please sign up with a partner but if you can't find one, contact me and I'll do my best to find one for you.
